“The wicked flee when no man is pursuing; but the righteous is as bold as a Lion.” – Proverbs 28:1
Text: Daniel 6: 19-22
Once you are living a holy life, its going to be well with you. You will be able to abide under the shadow of the Almighty God. No harm will come near you because the Almighty God will cover you with His wings according to Psalm 91: 4-11. However, when you go into sin, you will be running when nobody is chasing you. Friends, you have nothing to fear except sin. if you do not live in sin, i can assure you that God will treat you as a loving father will treat His child. Isaiah 3:10 says:
“Say to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.”
However verse 11 of the same chapter says:
“Woe to the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.”
When you are living a life of holiness, you have angels as your bodyguard. They will go with you anywhere you go. They will see danger miles ahead and ward it off on your behalf. Your security is in the name of the Lord ( Proverbs 18:10).
If you are living a life of trust in God and holiness, you will stand and will not be afraid (Psalm 125:1-3). Nothing can move you. Nothing happens in life without God’s permission. You cannot even eat an Apple without God’s enablement. The devil cannot do anything unless God allows it. Only when He abandons you as a result of you refusing to repent of your sins can demons come near you. You can be assured therefore that your victory is sure because God is not going to allow the wicked to come near you, so that you will not be discouraged. in the story of Daniel, when he was thrown into the lion’s den, he made a statement worthy of note. He said:
“My God sent His angel to shut the lions’ mouths so that they would not hurt me, for i have been found innocent in his sight. and i have not wronged you, Your Majesty.” – Daniel 6:22
Those who are living holy do not need to be afraid of anything or anybody that represents the devouring lions of this world. My prayer for you is that God will give you the ability to live in holiness and that your life will be full of testimonies of victory over all principalities, powers and rulers of the darkness of this world in Jesus’ Name.
